    Interesting street film from 1906

    San Francisco?
    Can anyone name the thoroughfare?
    Looks like they attached a go pro to the front of a street car.
    Pedestrians were pretty nimble in those days.

    There you go



    historical ride (camera mounted on the front of a cable car) down Market Street in San Francisco in 1906. It was one of the first 35mm films ever taken. The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the Embarcadero wharf is still there. The film was originally thought to be from 1905 until David Kiehn, with the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, figured out exactly when it was shot. New York trade papers announced the film showing the wet streets from recent heavy rainfall. Shadows indicated the time of year and actual weather conditions on the historical record. The records even provided when the autos were registered and who owned them according to the issued plates. Supposedly, the street scenario was filmed only four days before the quake, and the film shipped by train to NY for processing.

    The Ferry Terminal building is at the end of Market Street in San Francisco on that old video. It still stands.
